Low on blinker fluid? :wacked:

What gen? C-5's are known for electrical gremlins - start with checking the grounds.

^^^ step one. You could have a bad "multifunction" switch which is the entire blinker assembly in the steering column. As Michael said, very common issue

try looking at the hazard switch, usually it goes and needs to be replaced, if you take it to the dealer your 39.00 part will cost around $400.00 to replace, There are better ways and you can find them on the Forums. Usually you can remove the radio and get to it that way. Good luck

Yeah, I figured it was either the blinker fluid or the blinker assembly in the steering column... I'll live with it for now... I can either drive in a straight line or use arm and hand signals if I see a copper... hopefully I see hime before he sees me. Thanks

most comonly its going to be a flasher aka hazzard switch, hit the hazzard button a couple times and if the signals start suddenly working thats your culprit, if not i have seen the multi function switches kick the bucket a few times. the hazard switch is time consuming but not terribly hard to replace with some mechanical skill, a pizza, box of band aids, and an afternoon to kill.

Why does that sound like experience speaking right there?
